GIANDOMENICO TIEPOLO (Venice 1727 - Madrid 1804) ANGELS CARRYING THE INDULGENCES OF THE CARMELITES
Etching and engraving, 1774-75, after Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Succi 1986, 174. A very good impression of the only state, with good margins. Trace of a vertical fold in the center, unobtrusive on the recto. Some stains, mainly at the verso; generally in very good condition. To the plate-mark 187 x 333 mm, the entire sheet measuring 223 x 380 mm.
On paper with a watermark of the type 'large coat-of-arms' similar to Succi, 1986, watermarks 16, 19, 20.
A rare print, part of a series of four, after the compartments painted (1740-44) by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo for the Scuola del Carmine. These prints are an example of the later Giandomenico's experimentations as an etcher.
